Today’s Word: Forgive Yourself!
Much is said on how we are to forgive others, but many of us seem to skip over the concept of forgiving ourselves.
Believe it or not, it’s equally important and vital to be sure we’ve forgiven ourselves, as it is that we’ve forgiven others!
Unforgiveness brings much bondage into our lives, regardless if it’s towards God, others or even ourselves.
Bitterness (the fruit of unforgiveness) is a means by which many are defiled:
- Hebrews 12:15, “Looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby many be defiled.”
Regardless of what we’ve done in our pasts, whether it be fornication, or some gross and embarrassing sin, it’s vital that we forgive ourselves from everything in our pasts that we are ashamed of. If God chose to forget our sins for His sake, then I think we ought to do the same:
- Isaiah 43:25, “I, even I, am he that blotteth out thy transgressions for mine own sake, and will not remember thy sins.”
God’s Word says that He has actually removed our sins from us! If we continually beat up on ourselves, it’s known as false guilt, and is a tool of the enemy to pull us down.
Take God At His Word And Believe It, & Praise Him That You Been Forgiving!
Blessing & Love From My Heart To Yours!
Have A Lovely Day!!
